Hélie CAPET, Comtesse de Bourgogne

  • Born: Between 1080 and 1083, Bourgogne, Marne, France
  • Married (1): 16 Jun 1095
  • Married (2): Late 1112/5
  • Died: 28 Feb 1141/2

  Generally referred to as Ctsse Hélie DE BOURGOGNE.

  Research Notes:

She is named by Orderic Vitalis, who also records her parentage, her two marriages and names her eldest son by each marriage. The contract of marriage between "Bertrandus Raimundi filius" and "Electæ" is dated Jun 1095. If this document is correctly dated, it is unlikely that Hélie was born much later than [1080/83]. A bull of Pope Pascal II dated 4 Feb 1107 names "Bertrannus comes" and comments that he had been "propter uxorem abiectam et multiplicata adulteria iamdiu excommunicationi subiectus". The document gives no more details of these charges, which from the context appear to have been brought some time before the date of the bull, whose main purpose was a threat of further excommunication against Bertrand for having attacked the monastery of Saint-Gilles. She accompanied her husband to Palestine. Guillaume of Jumièges records that ”Willelmum Talavatium” married “Ala...quæ fuerat antea uxor ducis Burgundiæ” [incorrect], and had “duos filios et totidem filias”. "Guido comes Pontivi" donated property to Cîteaux with the consent of "pater eius Willelmus comes…et mater eius Hela" by charter dated 18 Dec 1139. 1

  Marriage Information:

Hélie married Cte Bertrand DE TOULOUSE et de Tripoli, son of Cte Raymond IV DE TOULOUSE "de Saint-Gilles" and Unnamed DE PROVENCE, on 16 Jun 1095. (Bertrand DE TOULOUSE was born about 1065 in Toulouse, Haute-Garonne, Midi-Pyrenees, France and died on 21 Apr 1112 in Palestine.)

  Marriage Information:

Hélie also married Cte Guillaume I "Talvas" DE PONTHIEU, son of Robert II DE MONTGOMMMERY, Seigneur de Bellême & d'Alençon, Earl of Shrewsbury, and Agnès DE PONTHIEU, in late 1112/5. (Guillaume I "Talvas" DE PONTHIEU was born in Normandy, France and died on 29 Jun 1171.)
